CLASS is supporting the academic community and developing the next generation of marine scientists
Berths available on CLASS expeditions
The sustained observation expeditions have berths available for students and early career researchers (ECRs) to join them and make measurements or collect samples for projects in collaboration with CLASS researchers. Following the highly successful AMT model, students and ECRs will receive support in collecting their data and samples at sea, gain experience in a range of seagoing activities and benefit from working closely with CLASS researchers.
Access to model output
CLASS model runs have enormous potential for analysis - way beyond that taking place within the Science programme. We realise that it is not always easy to know where to start in finding and analysing model output, so CLASS is running a series of workshops to train ECRs in model code, data and tools.
Collaborative access to national capability instruments and facilities
Having trouble finding out what instruments, sensors and facilities are available to you as you plan your science programme? CLASS is developing a catalogue of facilities available within the centres, to help scientists identify and easily access the things they might require. CLASS researchers can work with you regarding sample analysis and data interpretation.
Grants for graduate students
CLASS has grants for around 15 students from across the Higher Education Institution (HEI) sector to conduct collaborative work with CLASS partners. The students gain access to CLASS resources and benefit from training in the use of data, model output, and/or technology, and their work adds value to CLASS research.
Internships at a CLASS partner centre
CLASS has a yearly internship scheme to place around 10 graduate students or ECRs in the partner institutes. Applicants develop a potential project with a CLASS Principal Investigator (PI). Projects build on CLASS objectives, benefit the participant’s research and increase opportunities for publications. The winners gain one-to-one training and mentoring from the PI and access to facilities at the host partner institute.
Marine Science Summer School
In 2022 we will run a Marine Science Summer School based on the CLASS programme outcomes providing training and networking opportunities for approximately 20 graduate students and ECRs. We will invite academics from the HEI community to guest lecture broadening the participants’ knowledge of the Marine Sector.
